Dragon Fruit Custard


    • 1 dragon fruit
    • 1 stick (1 cup) butter (melted)
    • 1/2 cup honey
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1 tbsp vanilla
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 4 eggs


    1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
    2. Peel & chop the dragon fruit. Cut it in half & the skin should easily pull away.
    3. In a mixing bowl, mix honey, vanilla, salt, milk, eggs, & butter. Mix thoroughly.
    4. Add dragon fruit & mix.
    5. Pour ingredients into a standard pie pan.
    6. Place in oven for 20 mins. Check it. Look at center to see if it is a jello like consistency. (See Note 2)
    7. If the center is not thick enough, cook for 10 more mins. Check every 5 to 10 mins after 30 mins total cooking time to ensure you don’t over cook the custard. (See Note 2)

Note 1: The chunks of dragon fruit were kinda big. Feel free to chop them into smaller bite size chunks. That is entirely up to you.

Note 2: You can overcook custard. You probably don’t want to do that. The center is the key. It should ripple some, but not too much. It shouldn’t be solid, but not a liquid either. Comparing it to jello is the best way, I know of, to determine when it is done. I am reminded of the jello’s old jingle, “watch it wiggle, see it jiggle….”
